Following the success of five seasons, Dice Media returns with a new season of its franchise Instagram series, ‘Firsts’, making it the longest-running digital property ever witnessed in India.

Season 6 showcases the enriching journey of a young couple faced with an unplanned pregnancy and eventually taking a leap of faith into parenthood.

Prega News and Country Delight make the ideal collaborators for this season as they continue to be the perfect companions in the lives of every to-be-mother across the country. With an intent of building a community of its own, the former seasons have captured the first moments that people experience in every relationship through topics such as college romance, LGBTQ+ relationships, arranged marriages and the acceptance of the specially-abled in a unique love story.

‘Firsts’ season 6 is an emotional journey of an ambitious married couple, Pakhi, (Tara Alisha Berry), and Ankur, (Karan Jotwani), who are caught off-guard when they accidentally get pregnant. The young working professionals work through their apprehensions and doubts as they experience their magical ‘Firsts’ of welcoming the baby. The 20 one-minute episodes of this season show the duo navigating through many obstacles such as managing work commitments, growing together as a couple, while learning to embrace parenthood.

Prega News helps confirm the pregnancy and thereby we witness their first reaction to becoming parents. It goes on to showcase the first official announcement of conceiving, to the first maternal instincts of wanting to provide the best for your child. This is seen when Pakhi chooses Country Delight’s 100% pure cow milk, a direct-to-home consumer brand that delivers pure, fresh and minimally processed food essentials, by sourcing its produce directly from a network of farmers.

Season 6 of ‘Firsts’ was launched on August 9, 2021, on Dice Media’s Instagram and Youtube page.
